March

It looks like last month's wind storm did more damage than we'd thought.  We took the kitties outside during the wind storm to show them that it was just wind - nothing scary - and saw that the wind had about taken off a large branch in back of the house.  It's hanging form the tree in the center of the picture.

Then today, we were looking around in front of the house and saw there was even worse damage.  A big tree in the front yard had almost lost 2 large branches.


On a happier note:  Happy pi day!  We made a chocolate meringue pie to celebrate the day.  Last month, I made a cherry pie to celebrate Washington's birthday.  I need to start making more pies.  We still have quite a few peaches to do something with.

I finished a new sweater for my DS2 for his recent birthday.  It's in Woolspun.


And, I'm no longer sure that thing's come in 3s as my MIL often said.  My DS2 stepped through the wood heating vent in the kitchen floor.  He didn't get hurt.  I was sitting down on a chair in the kitchen when a front leg came off.  I didn't get hurt, but we're going to get a new kitchen table and chairs.  (It's kind of sad to get rid of our old set.  We'd had them about 30 years, and they'd been with us on many moves.)  Our furnace stopped working, and we had to get a new one.  It was only just over a day that we were without heat.  But, I forgot about the trees.  Maybe they belong to another group of 3.
